Dyea Area Site Plan Environmental Assessment (EA)
The National Park Service (NPS) is considering changes in the Dyea area of Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park and has published an EA to analyze proposed actions and alternatives and their impacts on the environment.
Proposed changes to the Dyea area include upgrading the Dyea Flats Road, establishing a formal entrance into the Dyea Historic Townsite, rerouting trails to provide better interpretive opportunities, and establishing appropriate commercial use levels within the Dyea Core Historic Townsite. The plan also addresses graves within park boundaries that may be in danger of destruction because of changes in the Taiya River.
The EA will be available for public review from January 21, 2014 - March 28, 2014 at the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website: parkplanning.nps.gov
The public comment period will be open from January 21, 2014 through March 28, 2014.
